Went to Blick's today and came home with ink for the pilot parallel pen I bought in the city a few weeks ago (which is a really awesome pen btw!) as well as some oil paints, charcoal, and more led for my mechanical pencil!
I found an awesome app for my phone called artstudio. It's like Photoshop for your phone -- really. If you get the paid version you can actually save the files as psd's and transfer them to your computer. I'm completely in love with it right now. Haven't finished a picture with it yet but am working on one and am very happy so far. I might pay the extra couple dollars for more brushes soon >.>
Other than that I have been lazy as usual. I really have to clean up my room and actually get around to organizing all my art stuff and work on finishing a lot of it but it's hard to actually get started. It's going to be a lot of work and things like the internet and video games happen to be very addicting, lol. I really do want to get it done though... I just bought a bunch of posters and now that my walls are looking more awesome it's making the rest of the room look so much worse. Actually the biggest motivator to cleaning my room? Being able to get to my desk properly again so I can fix my PS2 finally and go back to FFVIII, lol. Anyone surprised by that? No? Good.
Speaking of FFVIII I am completely and utterly obsessed with the soundtrack. More so than usual... I have it playing right now actually. (Eyes on Me is on right now... *sniff*...) This soundtrack is just so damn perfect. It sends shivers down my back and is also a great soundtrack to draw to!
Also FFVIII related, guess who's birthday is Saturday! That's right people. Expect lot's of Squall from me in a few days! Mwhahaha! I can't believe I haven't posted anything with him yet. Or Laguna... gasp! But considering that nearly every drawing I'm working on right now is FFVIII related you can expect a lot soon, lol. I am not obsessed. Really. >.>
Also might possibly open up some digital commissions soon... I could definitely use some extra cash, especially since I still have yet to find a better job. I'm working on some examples and can hopefully have some info up in a few days?
Anyways, my birthday is coming up soon, which means almost time to renew my membership on here, lol. Not expecting to do much, I never do. Family usually goes out and we have some cake, that's about it. A few small gifts, nothing big. I'm already at the age where birthdays have lost most of their excitement, sigh.
Also no, I will never stop using this journal skin. Ever.
That's pretty much it. My life is so boring lately...
Remember though -- Speak with passion from the heart, because that's what matters most!
